Hi, As promised we uploaded the MSP430- stand alone programming software It supports both command line and Windows mode Every one can add MSP430 microcontrollers by himself there is very easy way to describe the processor memory in external text info file. The help on the commands etc is in the inst...

ftdi have drivers for x64, you can just use our
PID: 0x0004
VID: 0x15BA
to install the x64 drivers and there should be no problems

Hi, Somehow I missed this tread, so I'll clarify the situation with LPC2888 and I hope you will understand. LPC2888 is the most complex board we have made as technological challenge and as complexity and as incomplete documentation we ever dealt so far. I also appreciate all the help we got from NXP...

actually we have stand alone programmer software which is in beta release and we'll upload on our web this week
it allows HEX code manipulation and programming in MSP430 without need for any other 3rd party software and supports all our JTAGs

Paul should enlight us on this, but as far OpenOCD can program with much higher speed it's probably bad implementation of the CrossWorks F2232 drivers?

02 04 06 08 10 12 14 16 ....
01 03 05 07 11 13 15 17 ...

the pin # is written on the schematic
pin#1 is square on the bottom of the PCB

please let me know if still not clear

Joerg, ARM-USB-OCD have FTDI chip inside, we also have noticed that FTDI chips (not only F2232 but also FT232 which is used in PIC-MCP-USB) will not work on long cable with high resistance or work not reliable, but it's hard to say which is out of the specs FTDI chips or the cheap cable you try to u...

probably you didn't istalled the USB drivers or didn't copied the DLLs where they should be
why not asking Rowley for help? they have MSP430-JTAG-ISO and they know what and how to do to make it working with CrossWorks

Hi Jim, I wish I could help you, but we buy these LCDs from Chinese trader company for surplus GSM parts.

2.6.21 is not working well
what works stabile is 2.6.17, unfortunately it doesn't work by default with our board as supplied by Cirrus
we'll upload on our web the kernel with our patch to work with our board
all new boards are shipped with CDs with 2.6.17 image and sources.

Ulink and Jlink are products which are binded to Keil and IAR commercial compilers if you decide to work with Keil yuo will need Ulink if you decide to work with IAR you have to get Jlink I've never heard for free Keil software perhaps this is some demo limited memory or time IDE like the kickstart ...

how come VID/PID values are wrong?
can you tell us your "correct" VID/PID values you set?

CPLD may be faster but you have to attach it somehow to EP9302 do you?
so you have to implement some kind of protocol anyway
